During Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm announced that a mysterious project under the working title Grammar Rodeo is officially titled Star Wars: Skeleton Crew. Not much is known about the project, but there is a significant update thanks to a reputable Star Wars site.
According to Bespin Bulletin, Skeleton Crew has begun filming. Filming on the Disney+ series started in June at Manhattan Beach Studios. Additional filming is expected to take place at an unknown studio in Culver City, Ca, and at California State University in Dominguez Hills. There have yet to be any set photos revealing the shoot but these projects have a tendency to film outdoors, so expect to see something in the coming weeks.
Jude Law is set to lead the series, additional casting is being kept under wraps. Skeleton Crew is created and written by Christopher Ford, who will also executive produce with Jon Watts, who is set to also direct an undisclosed amount of episodes. The series will be set after the events of Return of the Jedi, and is set in the New Republic era, and tells of a group of kids lost in the Star Wars galaxy trying to find their way home. It is being described as a “galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s”.
Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are executive producing.
